LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Aug 28, 2014) - Methes Energies International Ltd. (NASDAQ: MEIL), today announced that it has entered into a feedstock credit facility with a major provider of credit to the renewable fuels industry (the "Lender"), which will provide Methes all the feedstock that is required to run at full current capacity (1 million gallons per month or approximately 40 railcars per month) and allow Methes to fulfill future orders for biodiesel that it receives from its customers that have been approved by the credit department of the Lender. Methes has also established a feedstock hedging account with the Lender to protect its margins against market price fluctuations. The Lender is a subsidiary of a Fortune 500 company which trades in a number of commodities and the group has important connections in the biodiesel industry. The new credit facility replaces Methes' preexisting $1.5 million credit facility.
Nicholas Ng, President of Methes, said, "Our new feedstock facility is a significant step forward for Methes. The amounts available to us will be driven solely by sales of biodiesel and will allow us to move to full production with confidence that the feedstock will be available. Establishing an ongoing relationship with this Lender is important for the future growth of Methes since it has experience and connections in the biodiesel industry that complement and enhance our own strengths. We are very pleased that we could establish this critical new relationship. This is the first time that the Lender has provided such a facility for a Canadian biodiesel producer."
